Two real estate agents raped a 17-year-old minor in a hotel on the pretext of showing her property in Kandivli late on Thursday. After receiving a tip-off about their location, the police arrested the duo from Virar yesterday.
The victim has been living alone in a rented apartment on Kandarpada, Dahisar (East), ever since her family returned to their hometown. Since she wanted to purchase a flat, she contacted two real estate agents operating in Kandivli on Wednesday morning. She got their numbers from a common friend Mohammad Saddam (22) who lives in the same colony as the victim.
Of the two agents, one has been identified as Krishna Mastud (25). Promising to show her some apartments in Kandivli Complex, they asked her to meet them near a mall on Akurli Road in Kandivli (East) on Thursday evening. The three met and went to a restaurant in Kandivli to talk. The accused then spiked the cold drink that the victim was sipping on. She lost consciousness. She regained her senses around 1.30 am yesterday, to find herself lying on the WEH in Kandivli (East).
She told the police that her clothes were torn and there were nail marks on her body. She felt pain in her private parts. She called one of her friends and went to Bhagwati hospital where she sought treatment. According to police sources, the accused confessed that they had raped her in a hotel in Virar when she was unconscious. Pravin Tiwari, assistant commissioner (Samta Nagar division), said, “We registered a rape case against the duo and sent them to Nagpada hospital for medical examination.
We arrested Krishna Mastud and his accomplice. They work as real estate agents.” The two have been booked under Sections 328 (poison), 376 (rape) and 34 (common intention) of the IPC. They were produced at Borivli court and remanded in police custody.
